Hobbygirl Posted July 7, 2008 Report Share Posted July 7, 2008 I'd like to say that the last 4 days I've been doing the "work for food" thing and WOW what a huge difference! Though she has momentary relapses occasionally; Lucy is actually learning quite fast what is acceptable behavior and what is not. She is even allowed to sleep with me again instead of in her room (she is quite happy about this). I still use her room as a time out when she does get too rough and so far 20 minutes is good enough for the both of us. When my little sis (6 yo) came over she didn't have to sit on the counter the entire time and they had a great time playing together. She did kill and eat a dove yesterday morning (ugh) and I am beginning to notice some herding instinct coming out. I've found she prefers the word "Enough" over "leave it" and she rarely bites or jumps up on me anymore (accept when she's really excited). I've also been playing a game with her where I hide morsels of food all over the apartment and she has to "Find" them. She really enjoys this searching game????? I also took her over to the park where there are some interesting kids jungle gyms....not A typical. She seemed to enjoy the agility challenge (including going through a tube). She also greeted a few men during my yard sale on Saturday without being wary but she did bark at a black lady; she was wearing headphones though (Lucy doesn't like it when people wear hats).
